Caitlyn Jenner thinks Bruce Jenner was “a jerk.” In her Vanity Fair interview, Caitlyn admits that she’s a lot nicer than her former male self.

“Even my son, actually, Burt [Jenner] said that to me one time,” reveals Jenner. “He goes, ‘To be honest with you, I think Caitlyn is a lot better than person than Bruce.'” The 65-year-old says she agrees with her son, noting, “Bruce always had a secret from morning till night. Caitlyn doesn’t have any secrets.”

The former Olympian also reveals that she’s not as stingy with her money as Bruce was, explaining at the time of the interview that she was sending a private plane to pick up her mother, Esther Jenner, so the two could meet as mother and daughter for the first time. “I’m sending a plane to pick her up, and my sister, because she’s 89 years old and cannot get on the airlines, but she has to come down, and you know, we have to do this,” says Jenner, adding, “What I told her, ‘Isn’t Caitlyn a much better friend?’ Bruce, he would never send a plane. No, no, no, what a jerk the guy was. Caitlyn is like, ‘Send the plane. Mom, we’re sending a plane, we’re going to pick you up and bring you down here.'”

Jenner then notes, “It seems like she has a lot more friends than he [Bruce] ever had.” As Gossip Cop reported, Jenner and his mom had that meeting last month, with Esther telling “Access Hollywood” on Monday that while Jenner looked “beautiful,” as her mother who named her, she would still call her “Bruce.” What do you think of Jenner admitting she’s much nicer as Caitlyn?
